Smiling Jack Sandwich

Smiling Jack Sandwich

Who can resist an edible jack-o-lantern sandwich when it's grinning at you?


  • 2 or 3 Rhodes Texas™ Rolls, thawed but still cold
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • Suggested sandwich fillings: barbeque beef and cheese


  1. Press rolls together to form a flat oval shape. With a knife, cut out a wide "V" shape in side of oval. Rotate "V" about a quarter turn and tuck the point under the pumpkin to form a stem. Trim, if necessary.
  2. Place on a sprayed baking sheet.
  3. Cut out 3 large triangles for eyes and a nose, and a large crescent shape mouth. Leave some teeth in, if desired. Cut 3 curved lines from top to bottom, almost all the way through the dough.
  4. Brush with egg and let rise for 30 minutes.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees F for about 20 minutes or until golden brown.
  6. Let cool on rack and then slice horizontally.
  7. Fill with piping-hot barbeque beef and cheese, or your own favorite sandwich makings.
